The Ice Age Art and the modern mind

Extraordinary art created up to 40,000 years ago and what it tells us about ourselves.

Enjoy a lavishly illustrated talk on the latest discoveries about Ice Age Art and how these reveal the thinking of our ancient ancestors.

The talk includes some portable art and some cave wall art from Britain and abroad. This session lasts about an hour and includes original Upper Palaeolithic (c.10, 000 - 50,000 years ago) object handling.
